From suburban lawn to backyard homestead…with ducks. A journal by Lori Fontanes
Athena the Nor’Easter brought our first snowfall of the 2012/2013 season.
For comparison, sameish view, two weeks earlier.
Frosting on the pumpkin?
Maybe the woolly bears were right.

looks like heavy, wet snow.. how do you keep the ducks warm?
Ah, that will be the subject of an upcoming post but, in short, ducks wear the “original” down coats under their amazing top layer of feathers. We did put them in the coop for the nor’easter but on an ordinary night without wind and not too cold, they are fine in the protected pen. I believe chickens need more shelter from the elements. And, yes, the snow was very heavy (more downed wires, lost Internet again that night!) but it melted very quickly. Just a preview of real winter to come. (I sort of hope. Last year was too weirdly warm.) Thx for commenting!!!
